Great photo of the lead up to McCrea's try on Saturday, just before Henry's offload...

Been impressed by what I've seen and heard of our 'Enry so far...

For the first few games he didn't look confident enough to offload and preferred to hold on to the ball, but certainly last weekend and apparently in Italy as well, he looked very Dangerous.

In the first couple of pre-season games we didn't have anyone running lines off Henry so he couldn't off-load even if he wanted to, it appears the rest of the backs are cottoning on now

I think that Henry is expecting a certain level of support before he looks for the offload. Plus it looks like he won't throw a pass that will turn over possession. He didn't pass to TOH in the Scarlet match as it looked like TOH would be shoved out.

Yes we did! ToH and Griffin ran great lines of him in both the exeter and Ireland games, you could see he saw the offload was on, but didn't.
It looked to me to be a bit of a confidence problem, also it looks like its sorted now

I think it will take a few games for them to get used to his off loading game but from the scarlets game he looks like the real deal !!
Benson who?? .................

I know you're joking, I made the same gag about Fionn Carr and McCrea the other day..

At the same time I'd take Carr back in a thirce, and I'd also rip the hand off the agent that got us Stanley. Class player, would fit in lovely alongside Henry/Eoin/Matthews. I can hear the buzz as he cuts another oppo player in half with a tackle .. >:D

Henry beginning to look the business alright....bound to take some time to settle in. Same goes for some of last year's fringe guys who are now cementing places.

And still with Browne, Nikora, Grace, Matthews and others to come back from injury and force others to really fight for places. We've got depth and competition we haven't had in a long time.
